Easy Hazelnut Truffle Recipe:

Truffes au Noisettes

Ingredients (for about 11/2 pounds):

1 cup Crème Fraîche (or heavy cream)
14 oz. Milk Chocolate (use a high quality milk chocolate if possible)
8 oz. Additional Milk Chocolate
11/2 cups Hazelnut (crushed into small pieces)
1 cup Cocoa Powder (optional) or
3 tbsp. Butter (optional)

How to Make It:

Batter (Ganache):

1. Break chocolate into small pieces and put in a large bowl.
2. Bring cream slowly to a light boil.
3. Pour boiling cream over chocolate and keep stirring until all the chocolate has melted and the batter is homogenous.
4. Stir in about 1/2 cup of crushed Hazelnut.
5. If you want to add butter, do so now, before the batter cools, and thickens.

This batter is called Ganache and is the base for any French chocolate truffles recipe!

When the ganache is warm it is very creamy. You can thicken it
1. by whisking it (the oxygen causes it to thicken) or
2. by putting it in the refrigerator.

You want the ganache to be just thick enough to easily form the truffle balls…

Forming Truffles:

1. Using two spoons (or a baking sac) form even and round balls. Place them on parchment or wax paper.
2. Melt the rest of the chocolate in a bain-marie (double-boiler).
3. Dip each ball in the melted chocolate and then roll it in the remaining crushed hazelnut. If you want, you can roll it in the cocoa powder right before rolling in the hazelnut - but it's up to you and your sweet tooth.
